Hermes Investment Management, the £28.6 billion manager focused on delivering superior, sustainable, risk adjusted returns to its clients – responsibly, has announced that they have let space at Midpoint, Basingstoke to FCB Halesway.

The leading healthcare marketing agency will be taking 7,500 sq ft of office space on the fifth floor at Midpoint, which is located in the heart of Basingstoke.

FCB Halesway, part of the Interpublic Group of Companies, will be relocating from Andover when the office fit out is completed, which is anticipated to be in May 2017.

The fifth floor extending to a total of 13,450 sq ft, is currently undergoing a comprehensive refurbishment to offer good quality, well specified offices to the North Hampshire market. The property is exceptionally well located, being adjacent to The Anvil in the centre of Basingstoke.

Stephen Ellis, Asset Manager, Hermes Investment Management, said: “‘A refurbishment to the reception and the 5th floor is currently being carried out to create a high quality, multi let office building which benefits from being very close to the station and we hope FCB Halesway will thrive in the building.”

Liz Rawlingson, Founder & President, FCB Halesway, said: “After a long search for new offices, we decided upon Midpoint because it offered us exactly the combination we sought: a location in the heart of Basingstoke, within walking distance of the station and with easy access to the motorway system, combined with excellent facilities and views over the surrounding countryside. We look forward to relocating our business there in late May.”

AECOM and Capita are among other long-term occupiers within the building.

Hollis Hockley acted and arranged the transaction on behalf of Hermes Investment Management and are jointly marketing the remaining space on the fifth floor.
